It’s that time of year for the best Canadian Youth and Open climbers to travel to the Rockies for the National Difficulty competition. You will be able to follow MC Pete Woods on Gripped’s Snapchat (@grippedmagazine) during the comp. Woods is a longtime commentator who provides informative points and humour. He will be joined by young crusher Andrew Funk. We will include the life feed on this post once it is online. The event will be held in Canmore’s Elevation Place. Visit the event site here for more info and running orders for the climbers here.
So incredibly excited to be competing at the Canadian Youth and Open National Championships coming up this weekend in my hometown ?Feeling like I have done everything in my power to prepare myself well for this event…now it’s time to go out there and have some fun! Also can’t wait to see all my friends from across the country!!
